    Four sizes up might be a bit much for a child’s pattern. Start by tracing the pattern rather than cutting the vintage one, in case things go horribly wrong.

    Hi Kate, thanks for the link I had a look at it. I will prob try to size up the pattern by 2 sizes for a start. I will trace the original, as you say.
